Pajamas. Growing up, Mum always made us a some good pajama shorts - my sisters’ Cat’s Pajama shorts were kind of a legend. Living in Canada, there’s maybe 3 days a summer when you need some cute short shorts and a tank. Living in Israel, I think there’s 3 days when you don’t? Not true, I know the weather will turn soon enough, and the humidity makes some good blankets and cozy a necessity. But, for now, I’ve sewn the ultimate summer pajamas - and out of an old tablecloth no less!Read More
So, here I am, writing a blog post about summer dress patterns. Is it because from the bottom of my heart I needed to inform you about these options? I mean, maybe. Is it really because I needed a place to sort out my thoughts and see all my options in front of me to decide?
So, to all of our benefit - here are the dress patterns I’ve been stalking the hashtags of all summer. Know of one I’m missing that I should be including? Let me know!
When I saw the Zadie Jumpsuit pattern start popping up on my Instagram feed, I knew that it was my jumpsuit pattern. I had been stalking jumpsuit patterns for a long time, but didn’t find anything that I felt I would actually wear past the blog post. BUT! This pattern - it looked forgiving of shapes, it claimed to be easy to sew, and the model was wearing it in yellow. That is an attractive pattern.Read More
I got the call yesterday. And by the call, I mean, my husband casually asked me, while looking at a faded t-shirt, “Do you think you could make me some t-shirts?” I don’t know, but I’m sure as heck going to try. Anything that gives me warrant to purchase new fabric is a go. So, I’ve started compiling a few different patterns I’m interested in, and figured it’s best to store them where others can benefit too!Read More
I’m not really sure where I first found Sew House Seven’s Toaster Sweater Pattern. It may have been from Quilt Kween’s Instagram stories, where she asked her followers for a suggestions for first time garment projects. She got an AMAZING list, which I grabbed some from to make my own list of garment patterns I’ll continue to update here.Read More
